EuroGeoSurveys at EGU Assembly 2014 with three Sessions

EuroGeoSurveys will join the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2014 in Vienna. EuroGeoSurveys will attend three different sessions, respectively: Soil and System Sciences, Earth & Space Science Informatics and Hydrological Sciences. It will present the scientific outcomes of two main projects, GEMAS (Geochemical Mapping of Agricultural and Grazing land Soil) and EGDI-Scope (feasibility study on a European Geological Data Infrastructure, EGDI), as well as Shale Gas studies.

1. Soil and System Sciences: The GEMAS session will take place at EGU on Monday 28th April with Oral Talks in the morning at 8.30 -13.00, and POSTER session in the afternoon.
The aim of the session is to present the scientific outcome of the GEMAS project, and to promote this large and unique open database for future use by different scientific communities.
2. Earth & Space Science Informatics: The EGDI-Scope session will take place on Wednesday 30th April in the morning at 8:30–10:15 AM, Room G3.
The objective of this session is to provide a forum to advance collaboration and to discuss the integration and harmonisation of geological information and services, to inform ongoing European and global initiatives. There are also links to existing Infrastructures and research infrastructures, including for example the implementation of INSPIRE specifications.
POSTERS – Attendance Tue, 29 Apr, 17:30–19:00 / Red Poster
3. Hydrological Sciences: The Shale gas extraction and groundwater resources session will take place on May the 1st in the morning at 10.30 -12.00 AM.
The aim of the session is to exchange facts and information about the potential and actual observed impacts of shale gas extraction on groundwater resources and to discuss scientific progress gained in design studies and actual shale gas extractions.
